    Niten Ichi Ryu Shoto - Red/White Oak & Isu no Ki

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Rounded Spine | Flat butt | Kendogata Kissaki

    Red Oak, White Oak and Isu no Ki available

    This Niten Ichi Shoto is made from woods from the southern islands of Kyushu (Japan), available in red or white oak, or Isu no Ki. This Shoto equips students of the Kenjutsu school "Niten Ichi Ryu", a school founded by Miyamoto Musashi. Intended for the practice with two swords, it is very thin, therefore light and elegant. It also suits practitioners of other styles seeking a Shoto to work on precision and speed.

    Please note that the Niten Ichi Ryu Shoto is slightly longer than the classic Shoto.

    We also offer the Bokken (long) version as well as the legendary Bokken "Musashi" destined for suburi practice.

    • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak, Isu no Ki
    • Available finish: Urethane varnish or camellia oil polish.
    • Manufacturing workshop: Horinouchi for red and white oak, Aramaki for Isu no ki.

    Non varnished - Oil polish option (+ 400 JPY):

    All our high-end are available either varnished with urethane or polished with camellia oil although they are much more pleasant to the touch as well as use with the latter.
    Unvarnished weapons are more ecologically-friendly, but they requires regular (monthly) maintenance with oil (camellia or wood maintenance oil) and they can only be made from the finest woods of Japanese quality. Given the need for maintenance of these weapons, our stocks are limited. Also, since the craftsmen must select the best wood possible to manufacture these weapons, the processing time is longer than for varnished weapons. If out of stock or made to order, the shipping time can take up to 6 weeks in case of shortage. Please note that the oil finish process can darken the wood significantly.

    About Niten Ichi Ryu :

    This Kenjutsu school, with complete name called Hyoto Niten Ichi Ryu, derives its great reputation from its founder, the most popular samurai, Miyamoto Musashi. Loosely translated into "school of the strategy of heaven and earth" its specificity is a broad catalogue of techniques with two swords, Bokken and Shoto (or Katana and Wakizashi). The two Bokken and Shoto of this school were created by Musashi himself and have therefore been used in this form for over 300 years. Also practised in this school are techniques with a long stick called Bo. Moreover there are several sub-groups existing, of which most are recognized as having a more or less direct filiation, as well as other Niten Ichi Ryu style inspirated schools like Saotome Sensei's practice with two swords in Aikido.
